Health Ministry to Restore 69 Family Health Nurses


Director-General Ronnie Gamzu of the Health Ministry told the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee, Monday, that the ministry will restore 69 nursing positions to Tipot Chalav family health centers by the end of 2011. The centers are in bad condition for lack of personnel.

Professor Gamzu said the nursing positions would force him to juggle other positions within the ministry, acknowledging that proper level of staffing would be 108 nursing positions.
